"she came to the philippines to talk about the asian economy, but even in manila, christina guard was unable to escape the eurozone debt crisis -- cristina lagard could not escape the debr crisis. the greek debt is expected to spiral to nearly 180% by the end of this year. by next year, it could be pushing 190%. the head of the imf has suggested that greece may

to help the fodder in syria, speaking of president obama, placing patriot missiles around the region to take down president bashar al asad's air power as soon as the current missile barrages can be contained. through mr. obama's critics the root of the absence of american leverage in the middle east today is a light footprint that was simply too light. is that shared? you're on the ground. is there a sense that the americans have been not present enough in all of this? >> absolutely. and it's not only that they have been absent, also when they have been present, they haven't been present substantially in the way people in the region would like them to be. president obama came to cairo after he was elected, delivered a positive speech, very much welcomed in this part of the world to re-set relations between the u.s. and the muslim world and the arab world. one of the things that he said that the united states does not accept a legitimacy of israeli settlements in the west bank. here we are four years later settlements have expanded. in the eyes of the arab world this cuts deliver. at
into iraq through syria. but the database of 500 individuals that were recruited to blow themselves up was critical with the effort to take al qaeda at it is in mesopotamia apart inside iraq. >> the mother lode of documents seized that has been known as the sinjar parade illustrates the point* nicely made by lt. general lewis, or flynn six years after a 9/11 attacks that intelligence committees representing a wide variety of agencies, but notorious and secret, had been collaborating on the unprecedented capability to crush the terrorist networks. addition to the special ops they used supercomputers and custom software for deployed a skilled and list and to charge just about every type of intel into searchable data weather tips or documents from the old fashioned spy network, but transcripts from interrogation, logs of surveillance, monitoring, ce llphones and computers and the images and sensory readings hovering high and silent over potential targets for days or months or years. few of them are clearly related and they would previously remade headed a bank account shared by the hezbol

treaty. >> what about syria? there have been some incidents of fire coming into the israeli part of the golan heights from syria. what's the latest on that? >> our estimation is all the remotes events have to do with stray bullets or stray mortars. nothing more than that. it's an internal conflict inside syria. and that's the way we treat it. >> is it a serious situation on the golan heights right now with syria or is it a temporary thing? >> it's a temporary thing. the borders are quiet. we see it as an internal syrian conflict which has nothing to do with us. >> and you're on the lebanese border with hezbollah, that's quiet as well? >> it's quiet but tense. hezbollah has acquired a huge arsenal of over 60,000 rockets and tried to think how many other militaries in the world even hold these amount of rockets. a speech was given today urging all the arab countries to smuggle rockets into gaza so hamas can use them. >> one final question, iran. what if any role are they playing in all of this? >> iran is, i would say, pulling the strings in many of the terror organizations in the
, syria and china and republican senator john mccain and democratic senator mark udall led the delegation. this panel takes a broad look at the global perception of american power and leadership in the world as well as advances in military and defense technology. from last week, this runs just over an hour. >> ladies and gentlemen, welcome. my name is gideon and i'm the editor of foreign affairs and it is a wonderful privilege and honor and pleasure to be here again at the halifax from. foreign affairs is in the business of serious discussions by knowledgeable people with important issues, free and frank exchanges on the most important questions out there and that's actually the same business that halifax is and so we are delighted to be the media sponsor, and it is going to be fantastic weekend. let me just cut right to the chase. we have a fantastic panel, and more importantly, a great topic and a wonderful group with all of you as well and so let's get right to it. our panelists here, david singer of "the new york times," the former undersecretary deputy secretary of state for global a
, including new violence in the middle east where the violence between syria and libya are threatening to be a whole new war. >> the benghazi investigation, when did the cia know it was a terror attack and why did the white house remove those rernss from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. >>> let's starts with the developing story out of the middle east this morning. we'll start there by telling you about the civilian casualties during the sixth day of rocket strikes between israel and gaza. 80 palestinians have been killed and 600 more injured. among them, 12 people killed last night including four women and four children when an israeli missile targeting a top hamas leader leveled a three-story building. this morning, israeli forces backed by tanks are massed along the edge of the gaza border ready for a potential all out invasion. although president obama says it would be, quote, preferable to avoid a ground war, he is making support of israel clear. >> there's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders so we are
construction on a $10 billion pipeline that will bring natural gas to their key ally, syria. iran's state-run news agency says construction will be finished by the second half of 2013. drivers might get some relief at the pump just in time for thanksgiving. aaa reports the national average for a gallon of regular gas has dropped by more than a quarter. $3.41. what a deal. aaa estimates 40 million people hit the road this holiday weekend. next on "money," we are creating headfirst toward the financial cliff. all that talk and no walk is not getting us anywhere. we were in the top economic advisors here with the three things president obama has to do to save us all. and the twinkie is dead, but who killed america's sweetest cowboy? i think it is the unions fault, but somebody is here to disagree with me. more "money" and no twinkies coming up. i always wait until the last minute. can i still ship a gift in time r christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew.

: but the reality the president is facing, you have got the crisis in syria. iran moving closer to getting nuclear weapons. the middle east is a tinder box. a big challenge for this white house. martha: congress vowing to investigate how cia talking points about the attack on the american consulate in benghazi were changed before being made public. general petraeus reportedly told congress that the reference to al qaeda somehow wasn't there inmore in the final version but he doesn't know what happened. top republicans are calling this a watergate-level coverup. >> the narrative was wrong and the intelligence was right. >> we are going to find out who made changes in the original statement. until we do, i think it's unwarranted to make accusations. martha: peter king, chairman of the house security committee. dianne feinstein says we are going to find out who made that change, do you think we are? >> we have to. it shouldn't be the only dpaition of -- shouldn't be the obligation of congress. i don't know why the administration didn't come forward and say these changes were made and why. the longer
and syria? what obligation to the french nation? it destroys our understanding of the term and weakens us as a citizen. since then according to greatest access of prosperity but history have been in decline this is inevitable and nothing lasts forever. one may be a healthy age to find the straight to reasonably consider the options this is designed to make a moral choice between two flawed and alternatives. if we do not have that choice to weaken the power of the american electorate. it is our country to enjoy as long as we choose. thank you. [applause] >> i think that i talked to long. >> we have a few questions. please wait for the microphone. we will start here. >> thank you very much for the thoughtful address. talk about hollywood culture , it is political to some degree. in the 53 had reagan and hollywood to do rehab robert redford, barbara streisand. what is the dynamic? are there any other signs in your career that it might be redirected? >> if you look at the people trying to save the world the phrase then hollywood was the soul so dead so those are saying the overall so that th
living in syria. i think there is no question that iran is continuing to play a role here, that iran is happy to have israel engage with hamas right now, that is a welcome distraction. i think a distraction that iran is pushing. supplying rockets or funding. whether training and terrorists. there is no question there is an iranian hand here. >> shannon: how likely is it that this turns in a ground war? >> charles is right. the effort and the preparation that the israelis made to mobilize their forces is significant. i don't think they are expecting this to end tomorrow. they are preparing for a ground operation. >> shannon: charles? >> the ultimate objective is hamas becomes hezbollah south. hezbollah has 50,000 rockets. which are iranian. essentially, israel is in a standoff. it cannot attack it because of the fire that would rain on rein the city. it's weaker today but it wants truce to institutionmize the immunity to the israeli attack so it becomes hezbollah. iran is behind it all because hezbollah and hamas are clients of iran. iran is thinking of israeli strike on the nuclear p
is a war in the area, and hezbollah is not in favor of this, they're weakened by the war in syria and the only state that's gaining anything from this, of course, is iran. so it's in the best interest, frankly of both parties, to come to some sort of brokered cease-fire, so that both sides can back away from this without having to resort to a ground war, harris. >> what about the seemingly vast new arsenal of weapons by hamas, our reporter david lee miller said earlier this hour, is seems like they're actually trying to wear down the israelis, sending a huge barrage of rockets. whose supplying the longer range weapons to hamas? >> let's put the weapons into perspective and there's really three, one is the home grown rocket, it's actually made in gaza, terribly ineffective. the second is the rocket, a 122 millimeter soviet design. the picture earlier of the multiple launch system. what you're talking about is a 5, iranian built rocket, 200 pound warhead, a range of 80 miles, can target tel aviv and jerusalem and this is the one that's worrisome, but as far as the israelis are conce
in the arab world, puts them at the head. and lastly, syria, couldn't be a better day for bashar al assad. takes all the attention officer ya. no one is looking at the murderous campaign of assad against his own people. >> andrea mitchell, the diplomacy for president obama about to start a second term with all of the problems in the middle east. he's in bangkok this morning. he talked about his support for israel. >> there's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. so we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes. and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. and we will continue to support israel's right to defend itself. >> so let's talk about how the president is working this right now, andrea. >> well, working this by trying to persuade the president of egypt to please pull back and pressure hamas for a cease-fire. that is where the action is. the arab spring is what changed all of this. all of the elements that tom just addressed were, you know, completely transform
be for defense, not creating a no-fly zone in syria. syrian rebels have called for a no-fly zone following the continued airstrike. and new developments in the search for possible new york city serial killer. the fbi and n.y.p.d. now looking for four potential witnesses after they respond on surveillance cameras around the area. the three victims were all middle eastern shopkeepers. those are your headlines. back to lori and melissa. melissa: president obama may not want anything to do with simpson-bowles, but some members of congress do. charlie gasparino on the behind the scenes effort played by the debt reduction partner covert the dreaded fiscal cliff. >> we should point out that they're meeting with legislative groups to craft a potential deal. going to numbers of congress to say here is what we think you should do, here is how it should work. here's the problem, this deal, whatever is being done here is basically being held by fairly y tightly by the leadership. republicans, nancy pelosi and reid on the democrat side. very little involvement with anybody else. that is the one thing t
on this. who benefits from this is syria and spotlight . syria gets the spotlight off and iran makes the weapon program excel. >> but a lot of people are putting the iranians behind hamas on this. hamas is alienated themselves from the iranians and moved out of sir yampt hamas always would have preferred to work with sunni than shiia and now they have those people to work with and all of the arms they want coming out of libya and tunisia after the arab spring. the reliance on the iranians is much less. >> brian: they sided with the syrian rebels and hesbollah sided with the syrian government. very complicated. great analysis. >> thank you, sir. >> brian: we move on on the run down. the camera was rolling in the moment of immingpact. >> look at that. >> brian: wow. the story behind the video next. candidate obama made this promise to the nation's heroes. >> no veteran should have to wait months or years for the benefits that you earned. >> brian: but the next guest said the president has not delivered. his story will blow you away. my friend told me about a great new way to get deals.
both domestically and internationally. remember, its external base of operations in syria was lost earlier in the year as a result of the civil war there. so really gaza is the only sole source of hamas's legitimacy. but currently in gaza, hamas is facing an enormous amount of pressure from all of these other smaller, much more radical militant groups that are pressuring hamas to be more -- more emphatic in its response as a resistance group against israel instead of maintaining the cease-fire that it has. at the same time, of course, hamas is dealing with the fact that the palestinian authority in the west bank is in the process of applying for nonstate member status at the united nations which would, again, severely decrease hamas's legitimacy as a representative of the palestinian people. so they see this as a way of maintaining their relevancy, if you will. >> interesting. so israel is, of course, tired of rockets from fgaza fired int the country, into israel. some of the talk in israel is definitely hawkish. in an op-ed, the former prime minister's son wrote what does a decisi
united states diplomat ed dredgen, served as u.s. ambassador to israel and ambassador to syria. mr. ambassador, iran, by having hamas really as a militant proxy in gaza, in many respects they can keep israel in check should israel decide it wants to go after iran's nuclear program because not only would israel potentially get it from iran, they could also potentially get it from sympathizers in gaza as well. what are your thoughts? >> no question that iran has been furnishing and providing these rockets to hamas. so therefore they are a key player in the military capabilities of hamas and other groups, such as palestinian islamic jihad in gaza. i think we have to make a distinction between the crisis in gaza and the -- the issue of iran developing nuclear weapons. they're distinct, but separate issues that have to be dealt with. nevertheless, i think this crisis in gaza, the worst case scenario is that israel feels compelled to do a land invasion of gaza. if it does so, it will be the death toll, the injuries will be very high, and it will be very destabilize and will really put a
they thought hamas would back down, clearly they haven't. this gets involved with syria so even though we don't have a blowup with iran this could explode out of control and the israelis have to make a decision. they recalled up 75,000 reserve is, more as to cool this thing down or something happens. what if this something has to happen, that will be uncontrollable. >> jeremy we thought the tensions between the middle east would be between israel and iran. this has people paying attention. >> this is a test from egypt and the change in government and they're saying i think hamas is saying how much support are we going to get from them? this is a test of the new middle east and how much support they get and we'll see. morsi is in a difficult place because the egyptian economy is not doing well. they need tourism, it's fallen completely down. the moderate elements in egypt are saying let's get on the economy here and the radical elements are saying support hamas, and this is going to be a real test of his leadership. >> this is the sort of situation that makes you think twice about your forecas
egypt is not going to go to war over gaza. syria is already having its own internal conflict and not a major oil producer in any case. iran as you mentioned frankly is, i mean, clearly would want to help hamas in this conflict. of course it's in no position to do so. for one thing, it's too distant from israel. it does not border israel at any point. it wouldn't be in a position to do anything besides maybe provide some equipment through the egypt/gaza border. >> that's the point. we do have longer range rockets that are now beginning to endanger tel aviv which most analysts agree are being trafficked into gaza at least with minimal help from the iranians. you don't think that's going to weigh on the minds of israeli lawmakers and defense ministers? >> the issue in relation to iran that certainly weighs on the minds of israeli politicians is the nuclear program. what is currently happening with gaza is going to stay localized with gaza. there is no -- i think any possibility that this will by itself turn into a broader war between israel and iran. there may well be war betwee
.s.-prc relationship in the sense that things will go off the tracks with regard to either iran or syria, or now with israel's problems on the gaza and so on, i think that both sides will be careful to try to work as well together as they can, but they don't look at things exactly the same way. and it will matter i think, at least to the united states if we find things we think should get done at the united nations or in other ways are being stymied by china. i'm not predicting that what i would at least put a star next to that as a possibility. north korea, i think we're going to see some renewed efforts over the next several months to see if there's a path forward with north korea. i don't see the obama administration changing the terms of engagement. and our ambassador in seoul just reiterate the fact that we won't. but we'll also the new government in seoul, which i think no matter who wins, will be looking towards at least some more engagement. and that could indeed complicate things and involve both the u.s. and china, and i think we have to pay attention. finally, on these issues, i think
are under way. >> woodruff: then, we turn to the other hot conflict in the middle east, in syria. margaret warner takes us inside the opposition forces and examines turkey's efforts to help the rebels. >> gist around this corner down this cobblestone street is a back alley where you can fiefned a whole underground economy. an underground economy that helps keep the syrian resistance going. >> brown: president obama makes an historic trip to myanmar. ray suarez looks at the asian country's steps away from a closed military dictatorship. >> woodruff: paul solman reports from the rockaways on new york's long island about insurance woes for victims of hurricane sandy. >> everything you're looking at here is destroyed. this used to be a really beautiful restaurant. >> where is the financing coming from if you don't have flood insurance? >> i don't know. i really don't. >> brown: and we close with the first of several conversations we'll have with newly elected senators. tonight: maine independent angus king. >> woodruff: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. major funding for the pbs newshour
